Been playing Dragon Quest IV DS for the Past few days. Currently on Chapter 4. Capter 3 was great, and makes up for the last two chapters being mediocre. If it can stay this good, this might be the first Dragon Quest game I actually enjoyed.

Re: Gundam AGE. I've been keeping up with it, but it's pretty tepid. It hasn't really done anything to specifically piss me off, it's just playing it so...safe. The animation is certainly pretty though, which is half the reason I watch anime anyway.

I liked the second and third arcs (so far) way more than the first one, if that helps.

Yeah, safe is my general impression so far. I'll probably give it another go (the dice have been repeatedly telling me to watch it), I just gotta try to adjust my expectations some more.

I didn't mean to imply that you should've known it was bad. It was just meant to be more of a comment that I'm not surprised to see it didn't live up to expectations. I guess I still have my old habit of twisting everything I say so I end up sounding like total jerk. =P

Yup, gamepads work on the game. Just plug it in and you're good to go. At least, that's how mine is.

Just as a reminder, if you're using a 360 controller, make sure you're using a wired one. I just got Ys Origin, and I'll personally be using my PS3 controller, which I'm pretty sure is just plug in and play.

There is seriously not a single redeeming quality to this show.

Not to sound like a dick or anything, but that's more or less the impression I got from reading the description on Crunchyroll...

Anyways, I'm starting to get board of Pretty Cure - Monster of the Week shows can only hold my attention for so long - so I decided to go back to Gundam AGE...but I don't think I'll be continuing it after all. I finished the first arc, and it's still pretty disappointing. I'll probably just end up going back to Pretty Cure tomorrow. I'm only 11 episodes in. Might want to watch some more before I call it quits.

I use Backloggery, too. I have approximately 800 games that are unfinished. I'd guesimate that at least a quarter of them are RPGs. I have a very long way to go...

Watched the first episode of Sword Arts Online.  Was alright.  Probably will check out the other episodes as they come.

Is the recent release of Hunter x Hunter any good?  Is it the same thing as the old Hunter x Hunter?  I was always kind of curious about it, but never saw it.

Anyone know?

I stopped watching around episode 19, but that's because I've been waiting for it to get sufficiently ahead so I can marathon it the next time I get the urge to watch it. So far...it's been good, but don't expect a lot of action. I haven't seen the original anime, but it's supposed to be even slower paced than the new one, which has already had as few as 3 fight scenes for nearly 20 episodes. It spend a lot of time developing its characters and world, which I find very interesting. It also has a lot of creative solutions to problems, and doesn't settle everything with violence. For a shonen show, I find it highly commendable, provided you keep your expectations in check.

I've taken a break from Dougram (which has been consistantly awesome for 25 eisodes) since I read a major spoiler that I now need to forget. Now I'm watching Pretty Cure, and so far it's been ...impressively tame for a magical girl show. Very little fanservice and the girls aren't overly cute or anything, and their tastes in boys are a little closer to their age. I really like the characters so far, though I wish the purple haired girl got some more development, but I guess that'll be the next episode. With that said, the action scenes so far have been horrible in virtually every way possible. It's like their from a low budget tokusatsu film or something. The first episode was especially terrible. Also, it doesn't look like it'll have much of a story. I'll keep watching, but don't be surprised if I get bored of it halfway through...

EDIT: Episode 4 of Pretty Cure was surprisingly awesome - even the action was good! Seriously, only problem is they solved the one mystery this show had, and it was kinda disappointing. The next one also looks like it could be interesting. Could this mean the show is actually picking up and could turn out better than I thought? Either way, I'm now going in with renewed enthusiasm.

This is the happiest day of my life for the 4th time this year.

Just finished The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, fun show

One of my favorite comedies, which is saying a lot since I find most comedies unfunny.
1391  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 09, 2012, 05:23:16 PM
So I finally saw a trailer of Dog Days', and it actually looks pretty cool. At the very least, it's not what I expected, which was just a harem anime with a bunch of cute dog-eared girls.

EDIT: And now I found out both seasons will be on Crunchyroll. Hoorah.
1392  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 08, 2012, 07:33:21 PM
I saw that a while ago, but figured no one here cared about Sailor Moon (I know I don't). The fact that it's getting a simultaneous release around the world is impressive, however.

EDIT: I'm watching Fang of the Sun Dougram, and so far it's been great. 9 episodes in and there's been a lot of good action featuring a large mix of ground and air vehicles, as well as a lot of foot soldier combat; a good set up for a potentially great plot with loads of political intrigue; and some really natural characters (even the side characters play their parts well, if you know what I mean) with a few standouts already, including the lead man. My only complaints are that the old school animation is somewhat inconsistant, and that it's been pretty slow to start. Really, I'm on episode 9 and we're just seeing the Dougram. It's not that bad though - it never feels like nothing's happening and there's always some conflict and story progression going on (unlike, say, Eureka Seven).

I'll let you guys know how it goes. I've heard very good things about this so far, some people even putting it in the same league as the old school Gundams. I never expected it to, but so far, it seems like it could actually live up to those exoectations. That's pretty good, since as far as I can tell, this is Ryosuke Takahashi's first work as a director, and out of the ones I've seen, this is already one of his best. Would be interesting if it turns out that he made a masterpiece on his first try.

I finished Trigun today. To put it simply, it was great. A little rough around the edges at times, but otherwise it was a lot of fun to watch with fantastic and memorable comedy throughout. When it got serious, though, it got dead serious, and while I didn't always enjoy it, when it pulled it off, it was beautiful. The action was intense, and I loved that Vash always tried to minimize the casualties. I can't stand to see people die. Music was great, the look could've been better but otherwise it worked well enough. Nothing bad to say really, except the ending was a tad anti-climactic.
1394  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 04, 2012, 04:09:18 PM
@Mickeymac92: Do you know there's a movie of Trigun? Sadly I haven't seen it yet, but plenty of people has said that is pretty damn good.

Yup. Gonna track down that and the cowboy Bebop movie down pretty soon once I'm done with Trigun.
1395  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: July 03, 2012, 09:53:01 PM
Been watching a lot of Trigun with my bro. It's been hilarious for most of the ride, but it's been getting more and more serious until it finally went super ultra serious in episode 12. It was such a dramatic shift in tone that I almost didn't like it. I suppose it should be refreshing after all the comedy, but I dunno, it just didn't feel right. Wonder how it's gonna be from here on out...

And running gag with the cat is starting to get on my nerves...
